Thanks to you, the SBI readers, Soccer By Ives was able to bring home the Best Blog Award from U.S. Soccer for 2008. Now, we're looking to take on the big boys in all the major sports.
SBI has been named one of 14 finalists for the Best Sports Blog award, presented by the 2008 weblog awards. The list of finalists includes some of the biggest names on the sports web, including Deadspin and The Big Lead.
While we didn't lobby on SBI for votes for the U.S. Soccer award, I have no problem asking you all to vote for SBI this time around because, let's face it, we are big underdogs. Consider SBI the Anorthosis Famagusta in this Champions League-like contest. Cast your vote for SBI using the link above and help us pull off an upset or two. The voting closes on Tuesday, Jan. 13th.
Thanks to all of you who nominated SBI for this award.
